LAW 4761 - Evidence


This course introduces students to the body of law that protects the integrity of our trial process. Information is the factual material that parties wish to introduce in judicial proceedings. Evidence is the set of rules that have been created to distinguish between admissible and inadmissible information. The law of evidence is the set of policies and rules that have been developed to ensure that the information considered by the trier of fact is of sufficient integrity to justify its use to decide a case. Students learn the core concepts of relevance and competence. They are introduced to the special problems of expert witness and hearsay testimony, as well as on the critical rules concerning the introduction of documentary evidence. The focus of these studies is on the applied use of the rules of evidence in a trial context.
